Brazilian superstar Neymar has every faith in Unai Emery being a huge success as Arsenal manager.
The 26-year-old played under the Spaniard at Paris Saint-Germain, winning the Ligue 1 title together last season.
Speaking to reporters ahead of Brazil’s friendly with Uruguay on Friday, Neymar was full of praise for his former boss:
Now it’s easy to say because Arsenal are playing really great football.
They are coming from a great run in recent matches and everybody knows he’s a really great coach.
We know about their quality and I was really happy to work with him because he’s a really hard working guy.
He really wanted to coach us and really wanted to study about football.
I think he will bring good things for Arsenal, which is really is a really huge and important club here in England. I wish him luck.
Emery has certainly made an eye-catching start at Arsenal, with the Gunners on a 16-game unbeaten run dating back to August.
The north Londoners already look a different proposition to the side Arsene Wenger left behind and Neymar’s comments suggest supporters should be excited by Emery’s appointment.
